Eviction Reports... Do they really work?
When I talk to customers about our Enhanced Landlord Search (or "Evictions Report"), most often I'm met with the same two responses. "We've tried the Evictions Report in the past and it never seems to work" or "we already have an Evictions Report... why would yours be any different?"

"My Evictions Report never works..."

A rose is a rose, and our evictions report is an evictions report. It's not the name that matters; it's about the quality of the content.

If your evictions report "never works," it's time to question the source of the data with your current provider. You may have been misled into purchasing a 'scraped' public records report, instead of a true Civil Filings Search. A 'scraped' public records report obtains their information by returning the public records off of the individual's credit report, that doesn't necessarily contain the most up-to-date information you need to make an informed rental decision - not exactly a rose. A real Evictions Report searches through millions of civil data records from Circuit Courts Nationwide. It has the

most up-to-date information regarding Evictions and Public Records: a homegrown rose.

"I buy a 'real' Evictions Report and it still doesn't work! Why are yours any different?"

John Doe strolls into ABC Apartments asking to rent apartment '4N'. The leasing agent, Jessica, will conduct a background check on Mr. Doe to determine if he qualifies. One of the reports included in Jessica's screening package is an Evictions Report provided by Fake ID. Jessica is confident that if John Doe has previously been evicted, then she will know about it as soon as she runs the report.

Let's see how this scenario will play out.

Scenario #1: Jessica will get an evictions report back from Fake ID with over 50 Evictions Cases on the name 'John Doe'. Jessica is flustered. Which one of these cases belongs to the John sitting in front of her? Is 'John Doe' just a common name? Are all of these reports really his? What will Jessica do in this scenario? Decline John based on inconclusive evidence, or accept him based on confusion?

Scenario #2: Jessica runs an evictions report from Fake ID on John Doe. She opens the report and finds... Nothing! Not one single case! How could such a common name such as John Doe not have one Civil Filing Report on file? Jessica's day was dull and boring- not just John's but almost every evictions report always comes out clean. How could it be?
